  1. 1. Heavy-Duty Spark-Ignited Single Cylinder Engine Fueling System

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Rohan Sharad Kittur; [2018]
    Keywords : Fueling system; heavy-duty; spark-ignited; single cylinder engine; aftermarket engine control unit; fuel-air mixture safety; bränslesystem; tunga fordon; tändstiftsantändning; encylinder motor; eftermarknadsmotorstyrenhet; bränsle-luft blandningssäkerhet;

    Abstract : Forskning inom motorutveckling bedrivs för att möta kommande emissionskrav och samtidigt minska bränsleförbrukningen. Kommande förbud mot dieseldrivna fordon planeras i flera städer runt om i världen. Alternativa bränsle som exempelvis naturgas ses som en lovande ersättning även för tunga fordon. READ MORE

    Abstract : This report travels through multiple disciplines to seek innovative and sustainable energy solutions for wastewater treatment plants. The first subject is a report about increased global temperatures and an over-exploitation of natural resources that threatens ecosystems worldwide. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wastewater from a biodiesel plant: characterization of streams and suggestions for treatment options

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Linnea Andersson; [2017]
    Keywords : water engineering; environmental engineering; avloppsteknik; vattenförsörjningsteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Biodiesel is an important alternative to ordinary diesel when limiting the effects on the climate. However, the production path of biodiesel produces a wastewater with a high chemical oxygen demand (COD) and it needs to be cleaned. The aim of this study was to characterise biodiesel wastewater as well as to suggest treatment options. READ MORE

  4. 4. Auxiliary Heater for Natural Gas Trucks

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Maskinkonstruktion; Linköpings universitet/Maskinkonstruktion

    Author : Mikael Karlgren Johansson; Kevin Leong; [2017]
    Keywords : auxiliary heater; natural gas; biogas; LNG; CNG; LBG; CBG; truck; thermal comfort; heating; BOG; boil-off gas; boil off gas; water to air; WTA; ATA; air to air; water-to-air; air-to-air; climate system; HVAC; fuel system; water system; cooling system;

    Abstract : As alternative fuels are becoming more common, technologies need to adjust to them. Natural gas is one of the alternative fuels that has grown during the latest years in the transport sector. Natural gas consists of around 97 % methane and is the cleanest fossil fuel. READ MORE

  5. 5. How to handle boil-off gases from LNG trucks

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/MaskinkonstruktionLinköpings universitet/Tekniska fakulteten; Linköpings universitet/MaskinkonstruktionLinköpings universitet/Tekniska fakulteten

    Author : Linda Gunnarsson; Erik Helander; [2015]
    Keywords : LNG; Liquefied natural gas; boil-off; boil-off gases; BOG; natural gas;

    Abstract : This master thesis project aims to investigate the circumstances of boil-off for heavy vehicle transports, using LNG as fuel, and suggest possible ways of handling these gases otherwise released into the atmosphere. LNG, Liquefied Natural Gas, is when natural gas is cooled below its vaporisation point, turning it into liquid phase which is a much more dense way of storing and transporting the fuel. READ MORE
